What makes people lose faith in democratic statecraft? The question seems an urgent one. In the first decades of the twenty-first century, citizens across the world have grown increasingly disillusioned with what was once a cherished ideal. Setting out an original theoretical model that explores the relations between democracy, subjectivity and sociality, and exploring its relevance to countries ranging from Kenya to Peru, The State We're In is a must-read for all political theorists, scholars of democracy, and readers concerned for the future of the democratic ideal.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"[This volume] successfully demonstrates that, globally, democracy has "systematically maintained inequality", and that attention must be served to the current inadequacies in the execution of this theoretical concept. This book is appropriate for students and academics in the fields of political science, anthropology, and sociology." * International Social Science Review

"This book is a strong contribution targeted at a much needed re-consideration of democracy as a concept and a practice in a world of porous boundaries, which exposes people in societies to the often hegemonic imposition of extra-territorial actors." * Harald Wydra, Cambridge University
